    You can try to following method to implement your SMS API to your form:

    1. Set up Webhook to send HTTP POST notification where you can use your own API code to send SMS notification. You can check this article for more information: How to Setup Webhook with JotForm.

    2. You can also use our custom thank you URL to redirect your user to your own PHP page. In this custom PHP page you can use read your form's POST data and use your SMS service provider's API to send SMS. For more information, just check this article: Send POST Data From JotForm Using PHP in Custom Thank You Page
